The latest insights on narrative, storytelling and leadership in higher education.

Insights

An exploration into narrative, storytelling and purpose

We believe that if you don’t ask questions, you’ll never know what could be possible. So when we created our Insights, we knew this is where we had to start. We ask questions like:

What does it mean to have a professional narrative and how can you use yours well? How have stories helped leaders enhance their impact, be happier, lead better? How do teams work together to improve student engagement, and engage students in the conversation in the first place?

This is what we’ve unlocked so far. Take a look, explore, enjoy. And if you really like what you see, subscribe to our mailing list.
